Reshape Your Reality

Liposuction with Dr. Michael Jazayeri

If you're someone who's dedicated to staying fit and healthy but can't get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, it can be frustrating. Certain areas of your body, such as your chin, love handles, thighs, or belly, might still look flabby and untoned, making you feel self-conscious.

At our practice in Santa Ana Liposuction is offered as a cosmetic treatment that can help you get rid of those unwanted fat deposits in a safe and effective way. By removing the extra fat from targeted areas, Liposuction can give you a more attractive and proportionate body shape.

Empowering Transformations

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure performed to improve the shape of the body by removing excess fat. Liposuction in Santa Ana with Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri is ideal for men and women who are at or near their ideal body weight but have stubborn, excess fat deposits in particular areas of the body.

While exercise and diet are the ways individuals can lose most of their excess body fat, in reality, it's not that simple. Slimming down specific areas of the body can be difficult or just about impossible. With Liposuction Santa Ana patients can enhance their body contours by targeting problem areas and eliminating stubborn fat.

Liposuction not only benefits patients physically but mentally as well. When you like the way you look, you feel better. Patients typically feel renewed and more self-confident. Gone are the days of struggling with uncomfortable shapewear underneath clothing or hiding embarrassing lumps with baggy clothes. At our practice in Santa Ana Liposuction performed by Dr. Jazayeri can empower patients to feel more confident in their favorite outfits or even without any clothing at all.

The Benefits of Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction is one of the most multi-faceted cosmetic procedures, as it can improve multiple areas of the body at one time. Not only does it remove excess fat, but it can also enhance the targeted area’s shape and appearance. Slimming down these areas will result in a firmer look and overall improved body shape. Whether it’s uneven or chubby arms, love handles around the abdomen, or saddlebags on the thighs, Liposuction can improve these stubborn trouble spots. At our practice in Santa Ana Liposuction is most commonly performed on the following areas:


Liposuction can remove the stubborn “pooch” many women experience on their lower abdomen after pregnancy. Fat can also be removed from the upper part of the abdomen for an overall flatter, firmer abdominal appearance.


Liposuction of the arms can remove excess fat, but it will not remove excess skin. Those who experience the best results have good skin elasticity and do not have existing sagging skin beneath the arms. If both excess skin and excess fat deposits are present, then combining the procedure with an arm lift can lead to some truly dramatic results.


Liposuction in Santa Ana is often performed in selected areas of the buttocks to improve its overall shape. The size of the buttocks can also be reduced with this procedure.


Flank liposuction can improve or eliminate the appearance of a “muffin top” or “love handles” on either side of the body. The result can often be the oft-desired hourglass shape for women and a masculine “V” shape for men.

Male Breasts

Fat in male breasts caused by gynecomastia or excess weight can be reduced with Liposuction to provide a flatter, more masculine chest appearance. The procedure is known to please the large majority of patients.


Liposuction of the neck can improve the appearance of a “double chin” by removing fat and defining the area between the lower face and neck.


Excess fat on the outer thighs, commonly known as “saddlebags,” can be streamlined, along with fat on the inner thighs to provide smoother, leaner looking legs.


Liposuction can help smooth the curve of the hips to create a natural-looking, feminine silhouette.

Elevate Your Self-Expression

Liposuction Candidates

Those who experience the best results with Liposuction are at or near their ideal weight and have maintained it for at least two months. The best candidates also have good skin elasticity without significant excess skin in the area to be treated. Patients who wish to remove excess skin are better candidates for skin removal surgery like a tummy tuck or arm lift.

What issues does Liposuction address?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to address various issues related to body contouring and fat reduction. Here are some common concerns that it addresses:

Excess Fat Deposits

The procedure is primarily used to remove localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. These stubborn fat pockets often accumulate in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, chin, and neck.

Body Contouring

By selectively removing fat cells, body contouring can help reshape and contour specific areas of the body, enhancing overall proportion and symmetry. Liposuction can create smoother, more defined contours, providing patients with a slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.

Improving Body Confidence

Many individuals struggle with confidence and self-esteem issues due to perceived flaws in their body shape. This procedure eliminates unwanted fat and enhances body contours, leading to increased self-assurance and improved body image.

Treatment of Gynecomastia

For men, the procedure can be used to treat gynecomastia, a condition characterized by excess breast tissue development. By removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest area, Liposuction can create a more masculine chest contour and alleviate associated psychological discomfort.

Resolving Lipomas

This body contouring procedure can also be utilized to remove lipomas, benign fatty tumors that often develop beneath the skin. By carefully extracting these fatty deposits, Liposuction can help alleviate discomfort, reduce cosmetic concerns, and prevent recurrence.

Enhancing Surgical Results

In certain cases, Liposuction may be combined with other surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), to enhance the overall outcome. By refining contours and eliminating excess fat, Liposuction can optimize the results of these procedures, achieving a more harmonious and balanced appearance.

Consultation and Preparation

Embracing Change

As a first step, Liposuction patients will have a meeting with their plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, health history, and the details of the procedure. During this meeting, the surgeon will examine the areas that need treatment and suggest realistic expectations and possible risks. While there is no set rule for how much a patient should weigh before surgery, they may be advised to lose weight and reach a stable weight that is close to their goal. This can be done through healthy eating and exercise, which will help the surgery go smoothly.

Preparing for Liposuction may also involve some medical tests, stopping certain medications, quitting smoking, and arranging for help during the recovery period. By participating in the consultation process and following the doctor's instructions, patients can make sure they are ready for the procedure and have the best chance for a successful outcome.

Redefining Beauty

The Liposuction Procedure

Several small incisions are made in the chosen area, and a solution is administered that reduces bleeding, pain, and bruising. This is called the tumescent technique. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through each incision to remove the fat permanently. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, either local or general anesthesia can be used. The length of the Liposuction procedure varies, and it can be broken into several stages to help minimize complications. This may be done as an inpatient procedure if a large volume of fat is being removed.

Contours and Confidence

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Liposuction patients typically begin to see initial improvements in body contour within a few weeks, with full results becoming apparent over several months as swelling subsides. During the recovery period, patients should expect some downtime and discomfort, avoid strenuous activities, and follow post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon. This includes wearing compression garments, refraining from smoking and alcohol, and adhering to proper incision care to minimize scarring.

To maintain long-term results, patients should adopt a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet and attend follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns. Proper aftercare and lifestyle habits are essential for optimizing outcomes and achieving lasting improvements in body shape and confidence.

Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

A: Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure; it is designed to sculpt the body and improve its overall shape. The average person only loses about half a pound to three pounds of fat during one Liposuction session.

A: The length of recovery from Liposuction will vary depending on the area or areas treated and on the patient’s ability to heal. Most patients can return to work after one or two days, but they should avoid exercise or other strenuous activity for two weeks.

A: Liposuction will not improve the appearance of cellulite or sagging skin. The best candidates should be near their ideal weight and have good skin elasticity since removing too much fat can lead to excess skin in the area. Liposuction can significantly improve the shape of the body, streamlining the areas that tend to bulge or do not fit easily into clothing. Liposuction patients experience firmer, more defined body contours and an overall improved self-esteem.

A: Results will be apparent once the swelling subsides, usually after four weeks. For some, the final result might not be fully visible until after a few months.

A: Liposuction employs minor incisions just a few millimeters long, which may leave small scars. Like other minor scars, the marks may fade over time. Moreover, your doctor will strive to make those scars less conspicuous.

A: Liposuction is not exclusive to women. It is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed on both men and women to address stubborn fat deposits and improve body contours.

A: Risks associated with Liposuction include infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, changes in sensation, contour irregularities, and adverse reactions to anesthesia.

A: The results of Liposuction are long-lasting, as fat cells removed during the procedure do not regenerate. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to prevent weight gain in untreated areas.

Procedures Under Local Anesthesia
with Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri

Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri, a distinguished plastic surgeon in Santa Ana, California, strongly advocates for patient comfort and safety during all procedures. His comprehensive approach to patient care includes using local anesthesia for various surgical procedures.

Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body where a surgical procedure will be performed. It allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable while avoiding the potential risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia. In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.

By taking advantage of local anesthesia's potential, Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri strives to make cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more accessible, comfortable, and patient-centered. His commitment to this safe anesthesia approach in Santa Ana, California, signals a new era in plastic surgery where patient comfort and safety are at the forefront.
